#KEEPFLOATIN AT FLOAT FEST

Float Fest hits Texas this weekend and we are READY!

The raddest, baddest, floatest fest kicks off this weekend at Cool River Ranch and this year’s lineup is stacked with some of our favorite acts. From Zedd to Weezer and everyone in between, Float Fest has created the perfect blend of music for all to enjoy out on the river. Grab your schedules Float Fam, because its time to start planning! Check out our top 5 artists to help you get started:


MGMT

First up, we have the psych rockers who made it big back in 2007 with “Electric Feel” — the song that is still stuck in all of our heads to this day! It’s been 4 years since they’ve put out any new music, but the duo has recently announced an album titled Little Dark Age. Since the announcement, they have played a handful of shows and premiered some new material. We can already tell that the two have fulfilled their promise of “re-dominating our mind holes”. Get ready for MGMT to shock you like an electric eel!


Mac Miller

As one of the few hip-hop acts of the weekend, Mac Miller is a must-see! His most recent album, The Divine Feminine, offered up a completely new side of the Pittsburgh rapper, really showcasing his artistry. We are so stoked to see him take the stage and do what he does best — get the crowd jumping!


Moon Taxi

You may have passed up seeing Moon Taxi in the past, but they are really worth checking out! Having been together as a band for 10 years now, it seems like they’ve played all of the major festivals within the US. The Nashville natives are dominating the festival scene, and you’ll immediately see why once you’ve caught their set! Come hop on the Moon Taxi with us!


Sweet Spirit

Get to know Austin’s very own Sweet Spirit! Headed by the vivacious Sabrina Ellis, the nine-piece band is a brilliant blend of both 70’s garage and southern rock, with tunes that will keep you dancing from start to finish! Check out the spirited single from their latest album St. Mojo!


Los Coast 

They may be the first act of the day, but this is not their first rodeo… or festival! Without an album or label, this up and coming band has still managed to take on the grand stages of Austin City Limits and Free Press Summer Fest. With soulful vocals and psychedelic guitar riffs that are out of this world, Los will make you question not only what decade you’re in, but where all this noise is coming from! You definitely don’t want to miss out on what Los Coast has got goin’ on!


Check out the daily schedule below & make sure to grab your tickets before they’re all gone!

 

See you on the river!

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: BRANTLEY GILBERT

Country Jam

In just a few short months, the country fest that we have all been waiting for will finally arrive! 2017 marks the 5th year of WCOL’s Country Jam at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio, & this year’s lineup is jam-packed with some of country music’s biggest stars!


We are so excited about this year’s headliner, Brantley Gilbert! He is not only a CMA, ACM, and Billboard award winner, but the guy really knows how to rock an arena crowd!

Brantley Gilbert Website

“Brantley Gilbert is definitely in the bad boy sect of country music. He’s not singing about all the stereotypical themes heard in country music, loves his heavy metal screams, & employs plenty of pyrotechnics into his show. If you ever find yourself itching for a good time & are in the position to see him live, take the chance — you might surprise yourself at how much fun you’ll actually have” – Star 102.5

Kayla Merrill – LiveNation

Check out the video for his latest single ‘The Weekend’ and get ready for the rocking good time happening this Labor Day Weekend!

Brantley Gilbert aside, Travis Tritt, Tyler Farr, Chase Rice, Chris Janson, Drake White & The Big Fire, A Thousand Horses, + many more will be showcased at Country Jam!

#ATGFallClassic – TOP 5

All Things Go

All Things Go Fall Classic is back and we are READY.

The music and food festival kicks off this October in the beautiful city of Washington, DC with a lineup that does not disappoint! Jam-packed with everything from R&B to electronic, there’s a little something for everyone to enjoy! Not only can you see some of today’s biggest acts, but also get ready to witness emerging artists that are soon to take the industry by storm!

Here is our list of top 5 artists that you just can not miss at this years All Things Go Fall Classic!

Foster the People – The Headliner

This is the headliner that you really can not miss! After taking a few years off, the band has recently announced that their upcoming third album, Sacred Hearts Club, is set to be released on July 21! These guys really know how to put on a show and with a long hiatus under their belt, who knows what tricks they have under their sleeves!

Cashmere Cat – The DJ

Cashmere Cat is probably one of the most experimental producers out right now and he’s got us all curious to see what he will do at this years Fall Classic! He’s worked with everyone from Selena Gomez to Kanye West and his latest LP 9 is evidence of just that! You’d be crazy not to check out Cashmere Cat!

April + Vista – The Newcomers

R&B with a twist, April + Vista is an absolute must see! Though the genre bending duo has just stepped foot on the scene, they have already opened up for heavy hitters including Common and Khalid. Make sure you get there early to see what they’ve got goin’ on!

Betty Who – The Shooting Star

The Australian pop singer has it all and she is taking over the world! Bring your dancing shoes because Betty Who will make anyone break out their best moves… we’ve already started practicing! Her latest album The Valley was released earlier this year!

Vince Staples – The Rapper

Of course we are all excited to see headliner, Young Thug, but don’t sleep on Vince Staples! His latest album, Big Fish Theory, is said to be “jaw dropping” according to NME and if that’s enough not enough to get your attention, the California rapper has been compared to the likes of Kendrick Lamar! Staples is definitely a can’t miss at All Things Go 2017!

See you at the market this fall, DC!
